    Hi I am researching family tree and found your site.
    Would you know anything more about Mary Barr. I am trying to establish if there is a connection to an Archibald Barr who may have married a Nancy ?
    Apparently he may have been buried at Killykergan Aghadowey around 1884.
    Possibly had a son called John who married a Catherine Brittain?

    Thank you
    Gary
